“Poisson Distribution Intuition (and derivation)” by Aerin Kim 🙏

Poisson was a 19CE French mathematician, or Statistician, who invented the Poisson Distribution.

**Note**: “**Applied” Math vs “Pure” (aka Modern / Abstract**) **Math**

Poisson, being an Applied Math expert in the French Science Academy, did not understand the “abstract” Math paper submitted to him by the 19-year-old Evariste Galois in “Group Theory” for the “**Insolvability*** of Quintic Polynomial Equations*“. Poisson rejected the paper commenting it was too vague, destroying the final hope of Galois to make his invention the “Modern Math” known to the world. The dejected poor Galois died at 21 after a duel during the chaotic era of the French Revolution.
